    Can't Uninstall Downloaded App From Gen 7 Fire 10

    A program I downloaded from the App Store called 'News' I cannot delete. Other apps I can delete from the screen by holding them in for a few seconds, a checkmark appears over it and a trashcan appears. For the one called 'News' when I hold it in no checkmark appears and the trashcan is grayed out..... If I go to SETTINGS to try and delete it it's not listed. I can find it under STORAGE..INTERNAL STORAGE, but there is no option to uninstall it.
    I hope someone can offer me some insight. Thanks

    While examining this more I found out it is just like a preinstalled app that can't be removed. I don't know how a downloaded app can do this.

    don't know, if its an amazon app, rather than a third party app from amazon, its foreseeable that it may go on the cant remove list..

    it depends how desperate you are to get rid of it. its not doing any harm, try putting ES file manager on it and deleting it with that, if not then registering your device seems the only way forward

    Thanks for your help. I'll give the file manager a try.
